Soccer Gaming Catch-All

Alright, I do have one PES gripe: Fouls.

I've been called for a foul making perfectly legal tackles, while the AI gets called rarely to never sometimes. At one point, we got called for a foul for getting tackled off the ball. It can be a bit infuriating.

One of the patches made this worse imo. I haven't got the impression it's unfairly biased regarding the AI but a bunch of stuff I would get away with in the past is getting called, stuff that to me looks like nothing more than a 50/50 challenge.

This 7 minute video summarizes the latest patch pretty neatly.

Unfortunately because of one of the actual improvements (AI actually does slide tackles and more often tries mistimed ones) makes an unfixed error stand out more (where fouls are almost never called when the AI does it).

Yeah, it was just so noticeable last night when I was playing. It felt pretty decent at release, but I'm getting called for ev-er-y-thing now, and it takes a LOT for the AI to get popped. Like, something in the Nigel de Jong in 2010 range.

Hoping a decent enough deal on PES comes up in January. Is anyone playing on PC? How does it hold up on there compared to console? It's currently on offer for £27 in UK, although I'm hoping that'll slip further to £20.
